L to R: I’m A Princess, You’re Not!, Demi-Blanc, Molten Copper, 326

I’ve been playing with ombre/gradient manicures these days using multichromes, foils and glitters, via ye olde layering in thirds method.

They look amazing yet do not play well together. They do not cure properly, reason for no nail photos — dents, dings, smudges in just a few hours, even with base and top coats and ample drying time in between layers.
